Cameron Peak, Mullen Fires Now Burning Over 300,000 Acres
As dry weather conditions continue to encourage Colorado's wildfires, the Cameron Peak and Mullen fires are now burning a combined 304,978 acres.
Cameron Peak Fire activity is expected to increase on Friday afternoon, according to a recent update. Crews will continue to attempt to secure the perimeter.
Meanwhile, the Albany County Sheriff's Office has changed the evacuation status of the Highway 10 corridor near the Mullen Fire from mandatory to pre-evacuation, which will allow residents to access their property if necessary.
Officials are hopeful that this weekend's cold front will provide some much-needed relief to firefighters.
